One of the most sophisticated and beautifully designed smartphones, Huawei Mate, is now available via Smart’s Postpaid plans. The word came out by Smart via a tweet and we even heard from our friends about 2 days ago that it’s already indeed available.
Upon checking their offer page, you can get the Kirin-chipset powered Smartphone for as low as Plan 999. A cashout of PhP12,000 is required though, which you can pay 24 years. Should you grab this deal, you will effectively paying PhP999 + PhP500 or PhP1,499 for 2 years.
[alert variation=”alert-info”]This plan includes 5gb Data Volume Allowance, 99 Free SMS and 9 free minutes.[/alert]
Should you wish, however, to further customize your plan, then we highly recommend that you get Mate 7 via All-in-One 1200 or 1800 with PhP10,800 and PhP7,200 cash-out respectively.
About Mate 7
Huawei Mate 7 is the first smartphone powered by an octa-core Kirin 925 SoC chipset. The latter has the reputation of efficiently balancing the phone’s power and performance thereby giving its users longer time to use the device without sacrificing performance.
The said smartphone is highly regarded for its ultra slim metal design that, in my opinion, is a bit better than the iPhone 6 Plus.

It is also powered with 13mp main camera and 5mp camera, which would definitely bring out your inner Josef Hoflehner.
But perhaps, one of the things that I love about this device is its battery life as it boasts a non-removable 4100mAh lithium polymer battery.
